Clinical Nutrition, Nutriceuticals In Ajax, Pickering, Whitby and Durham Region

Clinical nutrition is the science that prescribes individualized diet changes and nutriceuticals (natural supple-ments) for optimal health promotion and disease treatment following an assessment of daily eating habits/diet. Diet changes may be needed in the case of potential food sensitivities which can affect optimal functioning of the body. The signs and symptoms are not as pronounced as food allergies, but are more sub-tle and varied depending on the individual.

Some symptoms of food sensitivities may be: Headaches and joint aches; chronic indigestion (bloating, burping, gas, heartburn); irregular bowel habits (constipation, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel); skin aggravations (acne, eczema, psoriasis); changes in energy (fatigue, sluggishness, hyperactivity); mood changes (irritability, anxiety, dullness); respiratory system symptoms (sinusitis, excess phlegm, asthma).

Individualized attention to diet can optimize your energy, sleep, and lifestyle, but in many cases diet supplementation may be required.

Nutriceuticals can be used to assist when a vitamin or mineral deficiency is present due to inadequate diet, illness, and/or depletion by a medication. Many common symptoms, such as PMS, fatigue, and inability to focus, may be due to vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Nutriceuticals can also be used at higher doses to act at a therapeutic level, as in the case of osteoporosis or mood imbalances. They can be used in place of medica-tions and also to support current medication regimens.

Naturopathic Doctors are knowledgeable in drug nutrient interactions, as well as nutrient-nutrient interactions! Taking the wrong vitamins and minerals can negatively affect your health. It is important to consult with a naturopath before taking nutriceuticals (supplements).
